Abstract: Closed continuous mappings with first countable images preserve quasi-metric spaces as well as nonarchimedean quasi-metric spaces and $ \gamma $-spaces. This is a strict generalization of analogous results on perfect mappings: there exists a closed continuous mapping of a nonarchimedean quasi-metric Moore space onto a compact metric space which is neither perfect nor boundary compact.
